Club 47 Mt. Auburn, Cambridge, Mass., July 1963
Harry Smith included Dock Boggs' 1928 recordings of "The Country Blues" and "Sugar Baby" on his landmark six-LP collection Anthology of American Folk Music, which was first put out by Folkways Records in the 1950s and has recently been reissued on CD by Smithsonian Folkways. In the folk boom of the 60s, Boggs was one of many traditional performers to influence a new generation of musicians.
